Half way to preserving 100 acres more of the Amazon!
March 31, 2010

We are pleased to announce that we are now more than half way to our goal of raising $25,000 for the purchase of 100 more acres (40 hectares) in the community of Baltimori in the exquisite rainforests of Tambopata.  Acquiring this adjacent land would mean more than doubling the size of our existing center.  20 of the 100 acres have been previously farm, leaving room for our reforestation efforts.  The other 80 acres are pristine rainforest, Tambopata´s jungles being among the world´s most biodiverse.  We continue to seek a dozen generous donors to contribute $1,000 to this unique conservation opportunity.  No amount is too small.  Please donate.

Support natural disaster victims in Cusco through Camino Verde

Torrential rains and flooding in the Peruvian departments of Cusco, Puno, Apurimac, and Ayacucho have left tens of thousands homeless.  Camino Verde is offering support to our partners in the Cusco region delivering much-needed support goods to the victims of this devastating climatic event.  Your tax-exempt donation will go directly and in full to the purchase of food, emergency shelter, and other vital goods.  For further information on the disaster, please click here.

Our first relief campaign is focused on school supplies for newly homeless school children in the town of Urubamba, Cusco, Peru, where we have partnered with World Ayni and Ibanezackin.
